If you’ve been listening to the last 98 episodes (and you should have been), then you, awesome listener, know that we here at To-Ag Studios sure do love our television watching. We love it so much, we couldn’t help ourselves in comparing how the great television programming of yesterday has become the even awesome-er television programming of today! Join us this week as we talk about what has worked, what has changed, and what downright stinks! So shoot some vermin, become a friend of Dorothy’s, and prepare for a “Sexy Time Assemble!!’ on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
(38:12) – It’s topic time! We start off the discussion with the age of sitcoms and classic re-runs and why they stick around. Also, our generation is the generation of change, the separate tiers of “Cable TV,” and the internet filling niches.
(46:30) – Network TV is no longer the king, The Real World, the two sides of reality TV, and the idea of “quality polarization.”
(50:20) – Too much of a good thing, binge watching, and watching on the viewers terms. Also, Bill Clinton ruined cartoons and kids these days have it so much better… or is it just different?
Closing Song – The Fishin’ Hole
